Rationalism believes in Lamarckism. Rationalism believes iñ the Àbsolute. It sounds like a religion to me.

Why is rationalism limited to Lamarkism?  Why not include Darwinism as rationalist?  I think you are confusing Euclidean geometry with biology.

Rationalism is not limited by anything but the Àbsolute. Rationalism is a philosophy, not a science.

As a biologist, he may have studied poop ;-)

Rationalism is not limited by anything but the Àbsolute. Rationalism is a philosophy, not a science.

Are you speaking of pure logic?  Then it isn't philosophy, which is more general, and philosophy is an art, not a science.

Which absolute?  Are you aware that in general, the law of non-contradiction (A or not A, but not both) is wrong?  Because pure logic extends beyond binary.

The Absolute is whatever you want it to be.

Rationalists don't know when to just die.

Like old soldiers, they just fade away into the smoke of their own implicit contradictions.
